The council has reminded residents that there are only a few days remaining for residents to share their ideas for making Bolton streets safer for walking and cycling.

The deadline for submitting a response to the Safe Streets Save Lives campaign is Friday May 26.

The campaign aims to help social distancing on public streets as more people decide to walk or cycle during lockdown and beyond.

Once areas have been identified from the survey, improvement measures are planned to be put in place using £5 million from the Greater Manchester Combined Authority’s Mayor’s Challenge fund.

Changes include footway extensions, one-way streets and adding cycle lanes.

Bolton Council’s Executive Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport, Cllr Stuart Haslam, said: "Nobody knows the streets of Bolton better than the people who use them every day.

"That’s why we need your help to identify places where social distancing is proving the most difficult for those travelling on foot or by bike.

"It’s likely that social distancing measures will be in place for some time, and as people look for alternatives to public transport it is vital we do what we can to improve the road network."
